Mozzarella, Museums & Macchiato
A Week in Rome, October 2009
by Kristina Johnson With Contributions by Sharon Miro Jessica Pennington and Tris Beezley
What do you get when you combine an absurdly low airfare and four friends who love to travel? You get a week of mozzarella, museums, and macchiato in one of the most amazing cities in the world, Rome Italy.
Wander the beautiful food markets, relax with a coffee in a sidewalk café, and dine in hidden trattorias on our culinary journey through Rome.
Come along as we explore the splendors of the Coliseum, ancient Forum and Palatine. Go underground on a customized tour 2000 years below the surface of modern day Rome and see sites of worship and commerce. Stroll through the museums, churches and St. Peter’s Basilica to see the best art Rome has to offer.
